Elastomer mounts such as engine and chassis mounts, suspension bushes and vibration absorbers are thoroughly investigated and optimized for their specific application. Driven in particular by e-mobility, the test spectrum for determining dynamic stiffness as the key criterion is shifting towards ever higher frequencies.
With the m+p HFDST-3000-E high-frequency test rig, m+p international sets a new standard: It measures the dynamic stiffness of elastomer mounts up to 3,000 Hz with a simultaneous static preload of max. 5,000 N. The test rig adheres to the latest safety regulations and the EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. During operation, a fully enclosed test chamber protects the operator from all hazards.
The concept of the m+p HFDST-3000-E is based on a specially adapted electrodynamic shaker. The test specimen is mounted between the shaker and a seismic mass, which can be lowered to apply a static preload from 0 to 5,000 N. The test mode is automatically controlled by the well-proven m+p VibControl software which also provides a variety of analysis tools.
